Indigenous safe systems demonstration project 2010

 

Overview

The Indigenous safe systems demonstration project 2010 conducted a safe systems audit in Bidyadanga, an Indigenous community 190 km south of Broome, Western Australia.

The Safe system approach to road safety aims to eliminate all road fatalities and serious injuries in the long-term, while reducing these in the short-term through known effective interventions. The core elements of this approach focus on safe roads, safe vehicles, safe speeds and safe road users, which require safe management systems.

Recommendations across the five core elements were developed from the audit including:

An implementation plan for these recommendations was produced. The plan was based on likely resource availability and safety priorities.

This project was a recommendation of the 2008 Indigenous road safety forum and funded by Austroads.
